Whilst Solidago has diuretic action, this is not the main role of the plant. Solidago has been shown to have important anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic and antiseptic action, and seems to strengthen kidney function. This makes Solidago useful as an agent to counter inflammation and irritation of the kidneys when infection or stones are present. The diuretic action is also useful in helping to dissolve kidney stones.
Solidago has been approved by the German Commission E for the treatment of bladder and urinary system inflammations.
Do remember that herbs such as Solidago should not be used in an unsupervised manner if you have a serious kidney condition. A medical herbalist will advise you on suitable treatment. However, this herb may help to strengthen kidneys and prevent further problems where there is a tendency to repeated mild infections.
The main function of the kidneys is the elimination of waste products from the body. This is achieved through the formation of urine which also maintains a 'chemical' balance in cells and tissues, regulating fluid balance and blood pressure.
The anti-inflammatory and astringent properties of the herbs in Solidago Complex may be useful in combating infection in the urinary tract.
Herbal aquaretics can also be helpful in alleviating many urinary disorders such as infection and inflammation. Diluting the urine reduces the concentration of irritating and infective organisms present.
In addition, increasing the flow of urine can help to dissolve or 'wash out' stones which are present in the urinary tract.
Symptoms such as puffy eyes on waking lower back ache and fluid retention may benefit from Solidago Complex.
